“We are thrilled to have Covey and Joanna Vargas join Shop LIT Live and offer their products through our livestream shopping platform,” says Toby Zhang, CEO of Shop LIT Live. “With beauty continuously being at the forefront of technology and innovation, we could not ask for two better brands to continue our mission in enabling consumers to seamlessly shop and discover new products.”

“As a model and content creator, I can’t wait to use this platform as another creative outlet to help grow Covey,” says Emily DiDonato, supermodel and Co-Founder of Covey. “We are a community-bred brand, and engineered Covey’s formulas based on what consumers were talking about and asking for across my platforms and through our product reviews. We are so excited to test out livestream shopping as another way to engage with the Covey community.”

The platform partners with a curated group of creators who provides real product reviews, fun product demonstrations, and expert advice and tips. Because they can connect directly with the audience through the app, answering questions live and addressing shoppers’ concerns, these creators help the consumers to build trust in the brands. Another way for brands to leverage the platform is to go live themselves and make that connection to the consumer even more direct and engaging – especially if the brand has a great founder story in the cases of Covey and Joanna Vargas.

“I am really excited to join the SLL platform because I love connecting directly with the consumer,” says Joanna Vargas – Celebrity Facialist, Founder of Joanna Vargas Salons and Skin Care and Author of “Glow From Within”. “My favorite part of being an esthetician is being able to connect with my clients, discovering their needs and wants and curating a skincare routine for them. SLL facilitates a connection that you can’t necessarily get via DM.”

With a shared commitment to serving and celebrating their customers, the companies look forward to building this new long-term union.

Shop LIT Live’s livestream with Emily DiDonato of Covey will begin on Tuesday, July 20th at 7pm ET. The platform’s livestream with Joanna Vargas will begin on Friday, July 23rd at 2pm ET.
